Women in Vocational Education Administration. A Nationwide Analysis. Research and Development Series No. 179.
Bowers, Ellen; And Others
A study was conducted to determine current requirements for certification in vocational education administration and the number of women who are qualified for and who currently hold such positions. Data was gathered through a request to states for copies of readily available printed material on the requirements for administering vocational programs and on the number of women certified for these positions. Among the findings was that all states require certain qualifications if not certification or licensing for administration of vocational education programs. Thirty-four states require certification that includes specific vocational programs or courses and at times specific occupational experience. Thirteen of fifty states have established work experience requirements ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 hours. For 24.6 percent of the states, general administrative certification suffices. The remaining twelve states have adopted alternative patterns of credentialing that reflect needs identified in those particular states. (LRA)
